We read at Politico that Senator Hillary Clinton’s campaign killed a story:
Early this summer, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign for president learned that the men’s magazine GQ was working on a story the campaign was sure to hate: an account of infighting in Hillaryland.You can read the entire story here.
So Clinton’s aides pulled a page from the book of Hollywood publicists and offered GQ a stark choice: Kill the piece, or lose access to planned celebrity coverboy Bill Clinton.
Despite internal protests, GQ editor Jim Nelson met the Clinton campaign’s demands, which had been delivered by Bill Clinton’s spokesman, Jay Carson, several sources familiar with the conversations said.
GQ writer George Saunders traveled with Clinton to Africa in July, and Clinton is slated to appear on the cover of GQ’s December issue, in which it traditionally names a “Man of the Year,” according magazine industry sources.
And the offending article by Atlantic Monthly staff writer Josh Green got the spike.
“I don’t really get into the inner workings of the magazine, but I can tell you that yes, we did kill a Hillary piece. We kill pieces all the time for a variety of reasons,” Nelson said in an e-mail to Politico.
He did not respond to follow-up questions. A Clinton campaign spokesman declined to comment.
Folks, can it be true?
Did Hillary Clinton’s vast left-wing campaign kill a story GQ, a smallish magazine, was planning to run?
Why would Hillary’s campaign do such a thing?
What could GQ have been planning to say?
Why no shouts from the "free speech" crowd?
And will the NY Betray Us disclose what the Clinton campaign is keeping from us, just as it discloses America’s national security secrets?
I don’t think so. Party loyalty runs too deep.
